Access the Longview Public Library's online services using Washington State Library Now, the library app for Washingtonians.
Startup funding comes from a grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation as well as the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) through the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).
The Library Now app is available for most mobile devices and platforms, for mobile phones, for tablets, and similar devices. To get Library Now:
Scan the QR code or visit wa.boopsie.com from your mobile phone.
Or visit your app store, and search for Library Now
Library Now works on mobile devices including Android, iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod and iPod Touch), Windows Phone 8, Windows Mobile, Windows 8, Kindle Fire, Blackberry, Palm, J2ME, and Symbian Series 60. Other browser-enabled devices are also supported.
A substantial grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation pays for the first year subscription fees for public libraries. Money from the grant will also be used for an internet-based marketing campaign to get the word out to potential app users.
Federal LSTA (Library Services and Technology Act) funding administered through the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS) was used to pay for the Library Now development costs for both public and academic libraries.
The Library Now app was developed by Boopsie for Libraries, the industry-leading mobile solution for over 2,500 public and academic library locations worldwide.
